I think I'm allergic to my boyfriend's semen? When he ejaculates in me, my vagina burns/itches for a couple hours. With condom or pull out, no pain?

In brief: Sources say yes

Yes indeed. Only recently recognized, you are very likely correct.
There are a variety of proteins in semen that are allergenic. For now, work around it with barrier methods. If this boy is a keeper, tho, and it's baby time, you'll need a fertility specialist and allergist working together.
